I had just finished reading Sam Ruby’s “Gone, really I mean it” post, and decided to use “301 Permanently Moved” HTTP codes for my feed redirects.

I noticed Planet Python in my access log around this time and went to look it up and check that, even though they are all valid, my feeds actually work.

In the long list of people at the top of the page, it has a link to my RSS 2.0 feed. What is the link URI? http://insom.me.uk/blog/rss20! In less than 10 minutes, it has updated itself to using the correct address. This shouldn’t be surprising; it’s what 301 means, but it was still very cool.
